    Decor/layout trends in your area 26th Feb 18 at 1:37 PM
    I've noticed that almost every house around the million quid mark in and around our way seems to have exactly the same kitchen/diner set-up. Full width back extension, shiny white kitchen with island and bar stools, tile or wooden floor (see pic 3 below).

    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-65531996.html

    TBF, if our layout had allowed, I suspect we might have ended up with the same, only minus the shiny kitchen because I don't like shiny kitchens, so I'm kind of glad the idiosyncrasy of our house meant we did something different.

    Any particular trends round your way?

    Liverpool is definitely whites and greys, crushed velvet, pelmets and mirrored furniture. I have a bit of those but trying for more traditional feel.

    I do have atrificial grass and its brilliant with 3 kids and a dog. no mess no upkeep and still looks the same now as when i put it down 5 years ago.

    Sister was selling her flat in London last year, EA told her he could tell the bathroom was about 10 years old because it was beige fake stone. I am in Norfolk, the current trend in bathrooms is beige fake stone

    They'd be wrong on that one then with my bathroom - done exactly the same as it would be if I were still back in the West Country - in beige fake stone. But it's a good deal newer than 10 years old.

    Admitted that makes more sense (ie being neutral) on a house that looks likely to be "rest of life property" - but, if money allowed, it would be back on the market...

    The EA would have been more accurate in accordance with the one that walked into my last bathroom and went "Ah! That Changing Rooms tv programme" - as they'd spotted the very deep colour I'd had the walls painted...that was some years old and I hadn't changed it again (courtesy of knowing from Day 1 that I'd be putting the house on the market at some point). Now that had got dated by the time I sold that house eventually...

    I took a 6year old bathroom back to bare walls that was done in real travertine.

    I didn't much care for it and my DW hated it.

    I was aware that it was the newest decor in the house and had cost quite a lot to install, but none of the bathroom fittings was to our taste, and certainly not the antique high level bog that washed people's shoes if they forgot to lower the lid before flushing; instant etiquette justice, but not worth the occasional laugh it gave.

    Anyway, I think travertine is very 'noughties' already
    If you are finding huge gaps between your paragraphs and use Firefox, MSE know about the problem. However, they aren't necessarily doing anything about it yet....
